GSA Mixed Media Explorations with oil paints & cold wax 

with Laurie Skantzos

6 WEEKS, WEDNESDAYS, APRIL 24 - MAY 29 12:30 - 3:30 PM

Welcome to a fun-filled six week course exploring the world of oil and cold wax! This medium is a true game changer for people interested in working with oils. We will be layering, scraping back, using solvent reductions, adding pastels, stamps, stencils and much more. Experimenting with a variety of tools such as brayers, clay modeling tools and “squeegies”, we will create beautifully layered paintings.
